was still a state senator in illinois, barack obama gave his speech, now a famous speech in chicago at an antiwar rally. the rally was against the pending invasion iraq and obama was a to speak against invading iraq. but he was uncomfortable because this is an antiwar rally and they were familiar antiwar types from the chicago area who show up at every antiwar rally and he felt out of place because even though he was supposed to invading iraq, the point of the speech was that he was not against all wars, did he believe some wars were necessary and just and he cited incidents in history where he thought that was the case. and then he said that he felt the appropriate target for the united states or the leaders of al qaeda, the men who planned the attacks on this country in 2001. and he said, i would take up arms against al qaeda myself. well, at that point, maybe he had dreams even then at 2003 of someday becoming president of the united states, but he certainly could never have envisioned how about office he would have essentially his finger on the trigger to an extent that most ame

, gifts to minorities were not the reason that president obama won the white state of new hampshire, the largely white state of iowa. it's not why he won the hometown of paul ryan, janesville, wisconsin. so there's just a factual issue. but third and biggest, and this is where you heard the louisiana governor, bobby jindal, installed yesterday as the chairman of the republican governors association. this is where you heard him coming in, that republicans say this is a just-doesn't-get-it moment for romney. it makes republicans think that the 47% comment was no slip of the tongue. at his press conference in las vegas yesterday, governor jindal, our reporter, says became visibly agitated about this and said these comments were absolutely wrong. and they come at a time when almost every other leading republican figure is saying the party really needs to look inside itself and change karl rove. in "the wall street journal" today, it's saying the republican party needs to reverse engineer what the obama campaign did in its turnout efforts. senator john cornyn of texas, the head of the se
